Below is an appeal from NYFA Current editor Suzan Sherman for donations that will help ensure that the online publication continues to offer a strong voice for the visual arts community:
Dear NYFA Current subscriber,
Since the recession hit nearly a year ago, NYFA Current has been at the forefront of reporting on how artists have been impacted by the downturn. From our first “Art Market Recession Report” to our special “Money” issue and podcast on “Envisioning a 21st-Century WPA,” NYFA Current remains committed to providing vital, up-to-date information as well as stories on artists who are using the recession to jump-start their own initiatives. In addition, NYFA Current has provided over $15,000 to artists who have contributed their writings to the magazine over the past year.
The economic crisis has impacted NYFA as well, and in order for us to continue publishing NYFA Current in 2010 we’ll need your support. Launched in 2004 as a free online publication for artists, which focuses on the creative process rather than on art as a market-driven product, NYFA Current remains as relevant as ever. We’re asking our readers who value independent, nonprofit media and intelligent cultural analysis to contribute what they can to ensure that Current continues to thrive.
We have some of our strongest issues coming up this fall: September is a themed issue on “Miami in the off season,” offering an in-depth look at artists, arts workers, and collectors who flourish in Miami year-round, not only when the art fairs are in town. October provides a portrait of New York artists and how they’re weathering the economic storm; we’ll also profile The Laundromat Project, a Brooklyn-based nonprofit that mounts public art projects in laundromats throughout New York City, and which offers an innovative social model for sustainability that’s especially pertinent right now.
NYFA Current reports on the latest news and happenings in the art world as they happen. These are stories not found anywhere else.
NYFA Current features work by and about emerging artists rarely covered in the mainstream press, with exclusive web-based projects, interviews, and insider perspectives.
NYFA Current is free, arriving in your e-mail inbox twice monthly.
For NYFA’s online arts magazine to continue into 2010, we need your help. Any size donation will make a difference. Invest in creativity; give by clicking here or by sending a check through the mail to:
New York Foundation for the Arts

Brooklyn, NY 11201
Your support will have a timely, critical impact on the survival of this singular publication for artists. Thank you for being a NYFA Current subscriber.
Suzan Sherman, NYFA Current Editor
